Tom turned three in November! He loves music, reading books, throwing balls and giving high fives! He knows how to clean up the playroom when he is finished playing. Tom is making great strides in his skills- including fine motor and gross motor and communication skills.
We met Kip for the first time in November 2019, and what a cutie! He was a little shy with us and wasn’t too into trying all of our tasks. But, hey, we’re weird looking and weird sounding strangers! He did warm up to us after some time and we got to see a playful side to him. He loves to play house, especially with kitchen toys. Maybe he’ll be a chef one day!
Sometimes I wonder what it is like to read our posts as we struggle to relay the unique preciousness of each child. I feel like we use the same words, the same descriptions. Over and over we tell you how blown away we were with a child, how special that child is. But here is the thing, it is true. Each and every time it's true. and if you could just meet the child you would see and understand that. Instead we are tasked with telling you in a few words how special a child is.
Corbin - we met him several years ago. I knew we would be seeing him again when we went to China in November. I felt strangely nervous about it. It is hard to think about kids and try so hard to find their family and go back to see them again. They certainly have not spent as much time thinking about you as you have spent thinking about them!
Last week, our Gladney families and staff attended the Chinese New Year celebration in New York to bring in the new year.
Are you ready to meet Alexander The Cute?!?! Alexander is such a sweet little three and half year old boy!
Alexander enjoyed playing with all the toys we brought. When a toy particularly sparked his interest, he would show it to his social worker so that she could share in the discovery along with him, which melted our hearts. He
Is there anything cuter than a little 3 year old boy in a train shirt with yellow sleeves? I think not!
Oh my! It took no time for us to all fall in love with Asa! We met him when we were in Taiwan in November and he is such a personable little guy!
The first time I went to China with Superkids, back in 2013, I met a little girl. She was 6 years old at the time. She had strabismus and was missing the toes on one foot. The result of this, coupled with her too-big shoes, was many falls. But she slipped and fell and jumped right up again and kept going. She laughed with delighted abandon at the bubbles one of our team members blew.
We’ve got two more adorable sisters to introduce you to – meet Katelyn, who turns 8 years old next week (!), and her sister Kameron, who is 6 years old. We were able to meet these sweet girls during our Superkids trip in November. We have additional photos and information from this meeting that can be shared with families interested in being considered for matching.
